  1. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Tasty as usual, good Bourbon for 55 €, this batch comes in the nose very dry over, almost dusty, no glue, in the mouth then particularly fruity (for Baker's), red berries, cherry, nut and lots of wood

  2. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Sweet and tasty ....
    • Nose
      The colleague will hit you soon, sweet vanilla with a lot of caramel in the nose. Cooked fruits, come in the form of pear, apple, apricot. From the background comes a slightly sour note. Toasted bread with butter and some fresh leather. A cool touch. Something like mint.
    • Taste
      But strong, slightly bitter-nutty onset. Seasoning pushes, but then immediately makes room for the sweet vanilla caramel candy. The freshly toasted toast with butter is also found again. The second sip is also the cooked fruit. Pear and apple. Has something of fresh melted dark chocolate.
    • Finish
      Medium. Staying creamy with sweet espresso.

  3. ErrHaBe did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Should be enjoyed neat. Alcohol is well integrated. Time and air helps a lot. Altogether a multi-layered whiskey, really quaffable and quite affordable as well.
    • Nose
      Pure: liquorice, oak, freshly ground pepper and allspice. Some dry herbs (thyme and rosemary), nutmeg and fresh ginger. Then freshly ground aniseed seed. Becomes milder with time and some air. A few red berries and a bit of leather at the end.
      Water brings a certain alcoholic spiciness, which fades quickly, then some cooling menthol. The pepper and the spices recede. Instead some vanilla pudding with caramel sauce.
    • Taste
      Freshly grown black pepper, beside a beautiful sweetness and spices (cloves, nutmeg and allspice). Oily mouthfeel. Despite its high alcohol very harmonious and soft. Dark chocolate (>70%). Water brings liquorice, the spices condense with a little caramel to Ricola sweets, some cooling menthol. At the end freshly broken branches and some wormwood.
    • Finish
      Long and intense, pepper and herb candies linger. Warming and mouth filling.

  4. Malthead19 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    a super intense balanced soft bourbon,
    very good quality, a clear premium US whiskey of the upper class
    • Nose
      somewhat reserved, soft and pleasant, no trace of glue or unpleasant alcoholic note, typical sweetness of corn, vanilla
    • Taste
      oW: strong, voluminous appearance, lots of aroma on the palate, strong character, lots of vanilla and oak, but needs water;

      mW: softer and more aromatic than without water, a lot of sweetness and vanilla, very soft in the mouth, subtle wood notes, no disturbing factors
    • Finish
      medium length finish;
      medium-long strong spicy aftertaste

  5. schengel10 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    In the meantime already tasted a few bourbon, so far my best - the price of around € 52.00 is justified!
    Full, powerful, strong, aromatic = simply good!
    Color [mahogany]
    • Nose
      like corn, caramel, dark toast, ripe yellow fruits, spices, vanilla, oak;
    • Taste
      with a little water: powerful, strong, oily appearance; Nuts, caramel, honey, full rye seasoning, ginger, oak;
    • Finish
      long, strong finish, very spicy; aftertaste: coffee, somewhat bitter;

  10. DerDennis! scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    In contrast to the old bottle shape, this one was not drinkable right after opening. Bitter and spicy. Water only made things worse.
    I then transferred the contents of the bottle, which did not help at first. But after several months !!! it got better and he approached the old bottle.
    In the meantime he is excellent again! Not as good as he was in the old bottle.
